Rory is Racing to Success!

12th Nov 2021

Wow! What an achievement for Rory! We are so proud of you :-)   During this year Rory has competed in two National Championships across the UK. He finished first in the Ultimate Karting Championship and narrowly missed out on winning the second Championship by 1 point.

Previous winners from across Europe include current Formula 1 drivers Charles Leclerc, Esteban Ocon & Pierre Gasly.

At the end of the season Rory travelled to Genk in Belgium to compete at European level and spent most of the week in the top 6. He has been asked to travel to Italy on Tuesday to compete at a world level and test with a factory team.

On the 8th January he will attend an awards night in the hangar of Concorde to receive his trophy & be crowned Ultimate Karting Champion.   Well done Rory!  We are extremely proud of you!
